Mars Insight
#1
NASA said it would land Insight around 3PM EST, well it landed at 2:54 after  6 months and 300 million miles.
Not bad timing.  So I guess they still use what Einstein wrote in 1915.

So does that mean George Pence is the Einstein of the 351 Cleveland?

That’s some impressive timing. My wife is usually impressed if I can estimate what time I will be home from work within 30 min.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

Mine is issuing me progressive fines if i am over 30 mins late. +10EUR every time, so you are a lucky man.
P.S. I am on 110 EUR for next time Sad stimulates my estimation accuracy.

Guys from NASA might have something similar.

The Special Theory is pretty straight forward, I do have problems understanding
the General Theory.  There is a good book written by Charles Proteus Steinmetz  
called Four Lectures on Relativity and Space.  Don't know if it is available on Kindle.

It, and some of his lectures, are available on Project Gutenberg (free)

I was referring to the book by Steinmetz under the same name.
He gave a lecture (4) late 1922 early 1923 to groups of engineers.
They were "mathematicians" but not at the level of Einstein.  So
Charles attempted to explain all this.

I've looked through the text of the 4 lectures. You would have to be a practicing mathematician or physicist to get a lot out of them. It's been many years since I performed actual calculus calculations on real world problems (not classroom).

Einstein's book is a lot easier to get through. Some of it even sinks in, which is kind of scary Smile

Einstein nailed it once again back in 1915.
